Storyline

Sharon and Dustin Holden (Olivia D'abo and Anthony Starke) were High School sweethearts. They went to the same college and graduate school together and earned everything they ever dreamed of: great kids, great jobs, and the loyal golden retriever, "Jerry" (Jon Voight). But before long, Sharons's career consumes her world.

Adrienne Maloof Twin Sister?
4 September 2016 | by Christmas-ReviewerSee all my reviews

Review Date 9/14/2016

I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 Christmas MOVIES.

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST! I REVIEW Christmas MOVIES AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN!

This film is another rip-off of "It's a Wonderful Life". This film is hard to like when the star looks like Adrienne Maloof.

In this film Sharon and Dustin Holden (Olivia d'Abo and Anthony Starke) were high school sweethearts. They went to the same college and graduated together and got everything they ever dreamed of: great kids, great jobs, and the loyal golden retriever, "Jerry" (Jon Voight). But Sharon's career consumes her world. In an effort to rekindle the joyous family life they once shared, Dustin insists on taking a Christmas vacation to their old stomping grounds, Farthering Pines.

When they arrive, they're greeted by Jack Carter (C. Thomas Howell), Robert Jones (Jonathan Silverman) and their lively families. Despite the festivities, Sharon just can't seem to pull herself away from her work. Frustrated by juggling both her family and work life, Sharon wonders aloud how life would be if she and Dustin did not have children. The next day, she wakes up to find that her wish has come true! Her life has been turned upside down: Dustin is back to his old job-obsessed self, and her children are nowhere to be found. At first, she enjoys this new version of her life, but upon seeing how happy the Jones and Carter families are, she recognizes this isn't the life she wants. Can Sharon find a way to get her family back? Will she realize the true meaning of Christmas? Will the Holden family reunite before the clock strikes midnight?
